Lead singer of Dr Hook Dennis Locorriere joins Johnnie to share his 70s memories.

Signed in 1971 by CBS records, Dr Hook clocked up 8 albums during the 70s and toured worldwide. Best known for their hits 'Sylvia's Mother', 'A Little Bit More' and 'When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman' and their wild live shows, the 70s were a time of highs and lows for the band - with 2 gold discs and a UK number one, alongside filing for bankruptcy and record label woes.

Also on the show, Johnnie digs out some of the best of the BBC archive, and another listener helps to add a classic seven-inch single into Johnnie's Jukebox.
